Weekly Staff Picks: From Views to Vodka

Lunch specials, vodka towers and one of the best views in San Diego. Find out what our staff is buzzing about this week!


Published:

Steak House 

Don't panic! The La Jolla Strip Club is not an establishment for "dancing girls," but rather another fantastic Cohn Restaurant new to La Jolla. Happy hour is daily 3–7 p.m. with nightly specials daily also. For example, T-Bone Tuesdays offers a 20-ounce porterhouse for about $15, and Three Way Thursdays boasts three sliders and three sample beers for about $12. If you're a vodka lover, you'll be in awe of the floor-to-ceiling vodka tower centered behind the bar. To speed things up, the kitchen cooks for you during lunch hours, while at night you still do it yourself.
4282 Esplanade Court, University City
858-450-1400

Dining with a View

Our staff frequently dine at Island Prime–C Level, one of San Diego Magazine's favorite restaurants. This is an excellent lunch or dinner spot with an even more excellent view! Don't be afraid to order off Chef Deborah Scott's Healthier Lifestyle Menu either. The "Healthy Skirts on Fire" is highly recommended!
880 Harbor Island Drive, Harbor Island

Lunch Special 

Enoteca Style has a really great lunch deal: $10 gets you half a panini, soup or salad, and a drink. The food is great, the restaurant is really cool, and the wine list is impressive.
1445 India Street, Little Italy

Play 

Those who appreciate the sight of men in tights will find the drive to Escondido well worth it, and not just for the peek at pirates in tall boots and tight-fitting pants. The Welk Resort Theatre dives right in to the silly fun and clever lyrics of Pirates of Penzance, with deep-voiced local favorite Randall Dodge buckling swashes all over the stage. At the Welk through May 2: Thur. & Sat. at 1 & 8, Wed. & Sun. at 1.
8860 Lawrence Welk Drive, Escondido
760-749-3448

Frozen Yogurt 

Don’t let the Leaning Tower of Pisa-like structure in front fool you: The Yogurt Mill in El Cajon has an impressive selection of flavors, with great prices. Our staff member is strongly pushing Yogurt Mill for inclusion in our August Best of San Diego issue.
935 Broadway, El Cajon
619-579-1566
